Katie & T.J. decided to take their engagement photos in the West Village. It was a beautiful morning in NYC—we had the streets of the city to ourselves!

We made the short walk to The Highline to take a few pictures before heading down towards West 11th Street.

There are so many beautiful spots for engagement photos as you walk around the West Village. This cute little stoop located on Horatio St. was perfect!

My favorite spot in The West Village for engagement photos—this building covered in ivy is so photogenic!

We took photographs at The Standard Grill, which is where Katie & T.J. went on their first date together!

We had the restaurant all to ourselves as Katie & T.J. enjoyed a glass of wine together.

I loved how every table had a different set of dogs for their salt and pepper shakers.

The outside of The Standard was a beautiful location for photos too!

For Mabel and Troy’s styled sunrise New York City Elopement in Central Park, we took photographs at the iconic Bethesda Fountain. Mabel, a designer, made her wedding dress herself—from scratch!

With hardly another person in sight, we captured some amazing images that looked like we were the only ones out and about in NYC.

Ankita & Dhruv’s engagement photos were taken in Central Park in NYC. Though our session was in NYC, Ankita is actually from Texas, and Dhruv from India.

Ankita & Dhruv wanted a pre-wedding session that embodied their love for New York—especially the beauty of NYC in the Fall. Since their wedding would be taking place in India, capturing their love in the states before their wedding was super important and our goal during the session.

When it comes to selecting a location in Central Park, Bethesda Fountain is alway a favorite of mine. Located right next to the Loeb Boathouse, this iconic spot is very photogenic. Because it can get very crowded, I always recommend a sunrise session to keep the crowds at bay and get the location all to yourself.

Joe & Risa’s Central Park Engagement photos were taken on The Lake at Central Park. The Lake is located right next to Bethesda Fountain and the Loeb Boathouse—in the warmer months, you can rent a boat for around $20 an hour and paddle anywhere you want on the lake!

Capturing Joe and Risa’s session was so much different than my usual sessions, which made it a blast! I started in their boat taking a few close up images. Afterward, I rented a second boat to follow them around on the lake. It’s not easy paddling and taking photographs at the same time!

The Lake at Central Park is one of my favorite locations to take romantic photos in New York City. This incredible session was straight out of a fairytale!
